• An agenda detailing the material to be presented in the course shall accompany the continuing education request. If code is being taught reference the code. Without reference the class will be approved for General Education only.

• A brief summary of qualifications for each instructor shall accompany the continuing education request.


1. Continuing education classes shall be offered in not less than one-half hour increments with a one hour minimum.

2. Continuing education courses shall not be conducted in the licensee’s regular work place during normal business hours.

3. Continuing education course offerings shall be advertised and open to all license holders (posting of the course on the website calendar will be considered as advertising)

4. An evaluation form furnished by the Review Board shall be completed by each person attending the course and shall be returned to the Board.

5. The sponsoring group shall be responsible for verification of attendance and shall submit sign-in sheets to the Board.

6. Any deviation from a Board approved agenda or change in instructors shall be approved prior to the presentation.
